Tajikistan, in Central Asia has a high burden of TB, and presumed highest burden of Drug Resistant TB in the world. With a team of doctors and nurses, I am the paediatric medical doctor starting a new project in Tajikistan, working to manage children with TB.

I write this blog an honest reflection of the work I do and the world I see, and perhaps with the naivety of a person normally used to cycling around with (almost) complete freedom with my crazy nephews and nieces Ravi, Caelan, Meera, Aakash and Ethan Raj, eating paella cooked by my favourite chef and friend, Oskar Vegas Lopez, and the immense love of my sisters and parents.”
